The main focus should be pitching, pitching, and more pitching. The team was fifth in runs and sixth in OPS and still lost 93 games. I'm much more concerned about the starting rotation than I am about who will be batting sixth after Ellsbury, Pedroia, Ortiz, Middlebrooks, and Napoli.
I agree 100 percent. We need to revamp the pitching rotations if we want to be a baseball powerhouse again. As long as our bats stay relatively healthy, it's a top 10 offense and one that's good enough to make the playoffs without adding a big bat IMO ( and I am all for adding Hamilton ). But our pitching is in the bottom 5 rung of the league. If that doesn't change, I don't expect our position in the standings to change in 2013 from what it was in 2012. Pitching needs to be the number 1 focus for the Red Sox.
